Hey dummies! These recaps are a day late because of Titanfall. Because I played Titanfall for the first time yesterday. A lot. I know the feelings toward the game have been more than a little mixed here in the Dtoid community but I for one am in love.

It's been a long time since I've gotten into a shooter, let alone a multiplayer only competitive shooter but Titanfall just offers everything I could want from such a game. You don't have to play obsessively to feel like you're actually competing with other players. You also don't immediately die every two seconds, and best of all, you have a giant ass mech to pilot!

The game just does such a great job of making you feel like a complete badass as well. There's nothing quite like running a long a wall and jumping between buildings only to jump from one, land on an enemy mech, and then hijack his shit and destroy the enemy team!

The team behind the game has also done a great job of crafting a world that feels like Halo meets COD but somehow original all at the same time. Having your commanding officer pop up on your screen to let you know that your titan will be ready soon really gets you immersed in the world.

I could go on and on but really all you need to know is that this is a fantastic shootman game that has giant punching mechs that shoot rockets. I'm going to be preordering this on my next paycheck and I'm gonna go play some more of it right now. If you are also playing feel free to shoot me an Origin invite, crackityjones205

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment
The Adaptation

Some things don't belong in this world and yet they are conjured time and again by humans that wish to pay them tribute. A video game, book, comic or TV show becomes popular and later becomes adapted to another medium entirely or, worse, a mobile phone spin-off.

Sometimes you get Telltale's The Walking Dead and other times you get Super Mario Bros.: The Movie -- one a great tribute to the comics and TV shows and the other had its soul stolen and made a '90s movie executive's slave.

And here comes another classic game series with hopes of becoming a Netflix hit as I brace myself and hope it doesn't turn out to be a miserable pile of secrets.

Castlevania is a beloved series and with Konami it's sort of a surprise they'd do anything with it at all after running out the people that made their games good and running the franchise into the ground soon after. Yet here we are with an anime series debuting this week and I'm kind of excited for it.

History should leave me a bit more cynical, sure. I remember the Street Fighter live-action movie, the Zelda cartoon and much more, but Mortal Kombat was perfect in its camp and The Witcher games are pretty faithful to their source material. We even have games being adapted into other kinds of games by different developers. Borderlands is now a looter-shooter and a point-and-click adeventure and that works really well, actually.

So for this month's "Bloggers wanted," we want you head over to the community blogs and tell us about your favorite adaptations of games to other mediums or even your favorite adaptation of another medium to games. Use "The Adaptation: [Your game/title here]" in the title and place "Bloggers Wanted" in the tags.

Enough talk, have at you!
